boxofrane (2553) - Spring City, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 2, 2013
Can. Pours clear yellow with a small white head, heavy carboination. Mass produced lager staple. Smells of cornstarch, some funky moldy scent. Taste is a light euro lager. This is not bad but not worth seeking out.

Light haze on this gold beer, decent white head. Palate is softish but with a good carbonated bite. Sweet pale malt, slight wheat character. Decent, for the style, citric hops provide balance. Finishes soft and lagerish.

Grumbo (1768) - Ipswich, Suffolk, ENGLAND - JUL 20, 2013
1 pint can bought from a shop in Felixstowe. Pale yellow with a white head, quite thin, moderate carbonation, hay and grass apparent. OK but not great.

Sigmundflower (9) - Bruxelles, BELGIUM - JUN 29, 2013 does not count
Classica bionda rinfrescante. Colore vivo e schiuma densa e persistente. Giusto spunto di luppolo al palato e in retrogusto.

ectuohy27 (1073) - ESTONIA - MAY 20, 2013
Astringent, chalky/lemony barley water, basically. Unremarkable but for the Alka-Seltzer carbonation profile and taste. Not to be tried again

5.2% pale gold colour with a thin head, malt aroma, slightly sweet fizzy malt taste.

ClubGonzo (5568) - Bergen, NORWAY - MAR 10, 2013
Can. Straw yellow body, short-lived white head. Nose is pale malts, metallic grassy notes and hints of wet paper. Taste is sweet pale malts, maize and some faint grass tones. Metallic aftertaste. Light body, fizzy carbonation. Yuck. The most pleasing thing about this beer must be the elaborate aluminum foil wrapped around the top of the can, which is kind of a nice (albeit horribly kitschy) touch. :-P

Quack-Duck (9356) - Down South, GERMANY - DEC 19, 2012
bottle, courtesy of kevnic2008. Clear golden colour, mid-sized head. Grainy malty base, hints of fruit, shy hoppy finish.

mzaar (2991) - Varberg, SWEDEN - DEC 11, 2012
Flaska. Snygg guldfrgad l med livligt vitt skum. Trevliga och rtt intensiva dofter av majs, lime och ljust brd, smakar inte fullt lika mycket och gott som dr fanns frhoppningar om, men lime, majs och stt godis gr nd detta till ett helt okey l.

DanielBrown (4408) - Birmingham (via Leicester), West Midlands, ENGLAND - DEC 7, 2012
Can from Lithuanica, Birmingham. This is most certainly a game of two halves. Smells like a bald tennis ball. Upon swigging however, that early unpromise fades away to reveal a minerally, well constructed lager which hints at Germanic-ness. So far so good, but then it blemishes itself with a finish of rabid formica and Co-Op shelving during a stock check. I sort of like it.
